Art and Philosophy: What Happens Next?

Next DUST Event (in partnership with ACW MA programme)

In the past decade the relationship between art and philosophy has undergone significant changes. In particular, the nebulous strand of philosophy known as speculative realism started to appear more and more on the radar of working artists, curators, and theorists. However, as with all new developments we have started to witness recent attempts to critically examine this emergence.

 

In this event we invite Pete Wolfendale and Rob Jackson, two philosophers associated with these speculative philosophies, to take stock and reflect on the nature of this relationship, but also to provide insights into where they believe it is now going. Responses will be given by artist Teresa Gillespie and Rebecca O’Dwyer (writer and PhD student, Visual Culture, NCAD). To finish we will have an open debate allowing the local community to provide their own input into the nature of this dynamic.

 

Time: December 6th (2013) 4pm-6pm
